About the course

The MSc in Conservation Biology provides you with a knowledge base and the practical experience to address issues relating to biodiversity conservation and biodiversity management.

Modern conservation science transcends the traditional boundaries of biology, ecology and environmental management. Today’s managers of biodiversity need to be versed in a broad range of specialist fields, from population ecology and human community development, through to international wildlife trade and the economics of conservation, as well as the latest techniques in endangered species recovery.

Student Profile(s)

Leonie Lawrence

After finishing my MSc, I joined Global Canopy Programme, initially working on international climate and forest policy before moving on to researching the supply chains driving tropical deforestation. Since then, I have expanded my work in this area, focusing on palm oil and sustainable investment in my previous role at ZSL, and recently joining WCS as Regional Technical Adviser on forest rich commodities. I am currently based in Indonesia working to reduce the impacts of agriculture and its related supply chains, including those of coffee and copra, on protected areas. DICE was invaluable in teaching me about the complexities of conservation, the challenges we face and the range of skills needed for effective interdisciplinary conservation. I loved my time at DICE and now being part of the wide-reaching network of DICE alumni.
